Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts is a remake of the original Dungeon Explorer released on the TurboGrafx-16 in 1989.

Warriors of Ancient Arts is a real-time top-down action role-playing game which takes you to the world of Westoria Kingdom. Choose between the races Oros, Emporos and the Taratta and embark on a journey to find the lost Ancient Fighting Arts as a Hunter, Warrior or a Mage. There is a selection of over 60 different combat skills, divided into 8 different Art Schools for you to master.

Warriors of Ancient Arts plays like any simplified action RPG, doing quests grant you new playable areas and killing monsters raise your experience level. You can get robots under your command to help you on your quest to rid the world of the evil Demon God. Items can be identified and equipment can be even reworked to form new, more powerful weapons.

The remake is powered by a new fully 3D engine, complete with cutscenes and support for up to four players with the Nintendo Wi-Fi.
